40-minute train+bus ride from Shinjuku will take you back in time. At Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum, 30+ buildings as old as centuries have been reconstructed, relocated and preserved on its ground. Not only can you appreciate marvelous exterior which you will hardly be able to find in modern Tokyo, but you can actually step inside and look into every detail in the buildings. There is no better place to offer fascinating insights into everyday life in Japan’s good old days!
